Movie Review: His Girl Friday+Bill+Shelter+Videodrome

His Girl Friday (1940)

A B&W movie about print journalism starring Cary Grant, could you get anything any more dated? There is fast paced rat a tat tat dialogue. There is talk, talk, talk and smoking and boredom. This was a series of disasters and restless boredom.


Best Line:

“How many places to fish are there?”


#rewatching burning love from the beginning instead of sleeping from I'm Shannon. This is my Tumblr


~
Bill (2015)

A 'comedy' about Bill Shakespeare. There are dodgy fake beards and a terrible deuce joke. An old crone lumbers. There is mumbling and idiot unfunny comedy. Marlowe lurks. No names star. This was about as funny as piles.

Shelter (2010)

A Bulgarian film about a boy. It is subtitled. The boy went missing and comes home with a new attiude and new friends. This was not interesting.


Best Line:

“We don't live in the fields.”


~
Videodrome (1983)

James Woods and Debbie Harry star in this weird ass film. This is a weirdly prophetic weird film. Harry has red hair in this film. This was not good.


Best Lines:

“Media prophet.”


“Do you care?”


“Socially positive act.”


“I think that's bad.”


“Distress centre.”

Book Reviews: Trailer Park Trickster + The Lords Of Discipline

Trailer Park Trickster by David R. Slayton

The 2nd Adam Binder novel is a boring mess. If there is Book 3, I don't think I will bother. I do not care about Adam's man-pain or random elves.

“Hateful energy.”


“All very come here, go away-”


“It did not have good connotations.”


“His father's notions about manhood.”

“Isn't anywhere we can find him.”


“Past slights.”


“Do not call up what you can't put down.”


“He had no power, so he summoned nothing.”


“Made a terrible mistake.”


“Some kind of legacy, and I'm starting to think it's not anything good.”


“It killed everything,”


“This man wasn't worth anyone's mercy.”


“Turned the Great Plains from prairie to dry, dead land.”

I'm disregarded, my ex did a malicious act. I imagined a future with my ex, now there is enormous sadness. He broke my heart irreparably. I wasn't wanted. He abandoned me. I'm disappointed in my ex's life choices. I'm giving up on expecting people to care. My ex had no sincere desire. My ex made unfulfilled promises. I was desperately letdown.

Watched '7News: The Disappearance Of William Tyrrell' 1x02. A suspect became the most hated man in Australia, he's not a victim. Bill Spedding had too many concidences around him. He was a washing machine repair man? Spedding does wounded grievance and a misery vent. He lost his business and home, his ugly wife laments. Spedding had previous sex abuse complaints, which he waves off. Who pays for coffee and cake with a credit card? Spedding walked free, didums!.


There was a million dollar reward, no one has ever claimed it. There are machinations in the investigation which led to a cop being fired. Another suspect is named. There is talk of oyster scratches. The new suspect was accused of a murder in 1968. The suspect's son died mysteriously, the case is sealed. The suspect was acquitted of the 1968 murder. Pervs lurk in Kendall. There is talk of a deathbed confession. William is still missing.

One Angry/Fuchbau/Volcanalis

Why is the bimbo hanging around Nick's serial killer trailer? An evil lawyer is evil. Eric whines. Hank goes on holiday. The bimbo crashes her car while raving like she's on meth. She's doing a Lohan. Adalind whines and hangs out with gypsies. Nick's unpleasant. A volcano beast lumbers. The bimbo gets too much screen time. Are the Royal families actually Grimms? Where did they get the cannisters of stuff? This bored.


Best Lines:

“Well that's disappointing.”


“She wouldn't listen. No one ever does.”


“Not that I believe in such things.”

Nolan is blamed for his own murder. Ava is stalked by the new head of security. Mona plays chess. Alison has daughters? Taylor was a teacher at the uni?

No Further Questions, Your Honor?

The smug killers lie and escape punishment and refuse to testify. Marta's body has still not been found. Lawyers justify their crap. There is victim blaming and lies and cover ups and no justice. People are increasingly frustrated by the court coddling the murderers. Everyone likes to have their opinion.


There is no greatness. There is talk of a till being locked and missing money. Some bum showed up in court looking like a homeless junkie. There is animosity and people vigorously defend their crapulence. People only cared about their own purposes. Killers were acquitted.


Who was the 3rd person involved? The scum are oppressive and aggressive. There is a personal vendetta and people are fragile. People say I don't remember a lot. This leaves you impatient and yet another version of events are spun.


This was samey and clumsy and awkward. This case was the worst thing you could inflict. The case was closed. There is a truth test and a bumpy ride. People were deeply distrusted. This was unsuccessful. There is trauma and isolation and despair. There is talk of real estate and tax fraud. There is violent chaos. This was a dissonant jumble.


The case is still devastating people. There is no bleak clarity just cynical and ruthless scum. This was full of low resilience and deep despair and people you can't abide. There is talk of phone records and justice is disregarded. There is ill informed comment and CCTV and misjudged positions. There are expressions of concern and clamorous times and devastating impacts. The family suffers terrily. The unthinkable uncomfortable truth is still awaited. There is anxiety and dread and things still drag on.


Best Lines:

“Menacing.”


“Grotesque sight.”


“Cocky attiude.”


“Wasn't insignificant.”


“Justice and social laws are far from satisfactory.”


“Legal truth.”


“Something is wrong with justice.”


“Deal with the body.”


“Devastating ruling.”


“There's no interest.”


“Archive the case.”

A Warning To The Curious (1972)

A BBC Mr James adptation. An amateur archaeologist travels to Norfolk to look for a lost crown. This was naff. There are unfriendly yokels and where are all the women? A tramp who springs like Usain Bolt runs as scare chords blare.


Best Lines:

“Look you stupid oaf.”


“I'll get you locked up.”


“No digging here!”


“Buried crowns that guard the realm.”

The Devil's Throat 1x06


The Usual Suspects

A beekeeper is a near killer. Woods are very well lit. The idiot daughter is dumb. The hot cop broods. The hot cop is horny and there is male anger. The hot cop and his bro have a shoving match. The beekeeper Kolyo is scum.


Mia is intransigent. This was ineffective. Miscreants go unpunished. Men are gratuitously awful and deeply unhelpful. There is no reputational damage. There is evil intent. This was an uncomfortable story. There is inappropriate conduct. There are harsh results.


This was haphazard and a blunder. Things go disastrously and leads to disaster. This was cataclysmic. A scapegoat is sought. There are serious concerns.


There are far reaching dangerous consequences. The bully cop wears a sleeveless shirt showing off his tats. There is discontent and babbling and damaging decisions and hostile talk of a scarf not looking local. This was not entirely disquieting. Mia has arrogance. There are inconvenient and desperate migrants. There are mountains and damp looking forest.


Where's the bogeyman? This was futile. The case splits friendships and family. People make choices they should be ashamed of. A harbinger lurks and there is inadequacy. We see a translated copy of 'Catcher In The Rye' and a box o'stuff. There is inertia and banalities and pained imprecations. A cat is seen. Donka is worried. There is waffle.


Mia's idiot daughter is in peril. There are mad ideas and harm is done. There are anxieties and antagonisms and accommodations. Mia makes an accusation. Hot cop's bro is an ex-cop? The accusation is damaging to all concerned. This was weak and Filip threatens to quit if Mia stays.


Best Lines:

“Of course I'm alone.”


“Loser!”


“No one cares for the living.”


“Listen, you moron!”


“I would've messed him up just fine.”


“Check the criminal contingent.”


“How did the tobacco shed burn down.”


“Your child is drowning in blood.”

Ed Bishop who played Straker died in 2005. There is racism and hallcinations. This was lifeless and trite. The gammon shows up again. Grown men made baaing noises at each other. Is this a clip show?


Flight Path

A man with a bimbo wife is bothered. Toothpaste or what looks like it is used to repair a damaged spacesuit. What is a moon-hopper? This bored.

La Brea 1x07

The Storm

Eve justifies her crap. The stoner points out there could be other sinkholes. The cop scoffs when told to give up her gun - she murdered a woman and her husband. Eve and the worst cop ever are ordered to leave. Gavin is called on his crap. Gavin suddenly goes on about how he was adopted as a foundling and wants to rescue Eve, he seems to have forgotten he has a son. The 'natives' speak English and babble about sky people. A storm blows up. The stoner references 'Lost'. This was okay, even if Eve gets forgiven.
